2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the rare movies that I actually enjoyed more than its over-explanatory book. Every visual is burned into my memory. Every sound. Every bit of dialogue. Every beat. I even put that creepy Monolith/Star Gate music on in the summer just to give myself some much-needed chills. The Excavation Site built by James May (AKA poshhammer) is craftily recreated in minor to major decorative features from the wall textures to the overall symmetrical proportions. I can almost hear the high pitch screeching.
Legohaulic is a master of iconic moments, and this commissioned piece from Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey is no exception. "HAL, open the pod bay doors..." (just for giggles, if you have an iPhone, ask Siri to do that).
